Linn County Supervisors Vote to Hike Own Salaries
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) - Linn County supervisors have voted to increase their pay to reflect the full-time status of their jobs.
The board voted 4-1 on Wednesday for the raise to nearly $93,000, jumping up from their current pay of nearly $74,400.
The board cut supervisors' salaries in 2009 to 80 percent of full time after voters increased the board to five members from three.
The new salary matches that of the county auditor, treasurer and recorder.
Some critics had said the original salary cut was justified because having more board members meant each supervisor had less work, but supervisors have said they're working full time.
The pay change takes effect on July 1.
